    Glenn Greenwald: Democratic Party Has Collapsed As A National Political Force.....

    Greenwald should have mentioned that no matter what Demos with credibility are saying. The illiberals just wont listen.




    'The Intercept' founder Glenn Greenwald joins FNC's Tucker Carlson to discuss a piece he wrote arguing that the Democratic Party has "collapsed."


    He pointed to the losses Democrats have had in Congress, governorshps, and state-level elections and said the party was doubling down on past mistakes. He also noted that Republicans were one state house away from being able to pass a constitutional amendment. Greenwald said: "They are one statehouse away from enabling the Republilcans to call a constitutional convention by itself... So it is a party that has collapsed as a national political force in the U.S."


    "They're so obsessed with attacking Donald Trump and calling him all the names they called him during the election, talking about Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin, and Jill Stein, and everything else other than [why]."


    "Why did they lose? They lost because they favored policies from the 1990s, such as free trade, getting rid of restraints on Wall Street, having jobs go over-seas, and then they wonder why people in the Rust Belt with no economic future and economic anxiety, are abandoning the party in droves. And there is no attempt to examine that or even talk about it," he said.....snip~

    That's what the illiberals do with the Demo pundits out there telling it like it is. Doesn't matter who.....even Reich has tried to tell them. Even James Skullator Carville. All they hear is plastic bits Pelosi and Chucky Schumer.


    Btw you didn't think Cigar knew who Greenwald is, did ya?

    They can't even stand their own liberals, explaining it to them. So its automatic if it comes from the Right.

    The democratic party is a regional party now. And they control very few regions in the US. They can't win at the presidential level because the EC forces candidates to get broad base support. They can't win in most states for House and local reps because of Gerrymandering (the GOP had it in 2010 and likely will have it in 2020). In the Senate they are the most competitive. But some key issues get them all the time. Guns as one example.

    Now is the time to take them out. When they are all in disarray and into the deranged syndrome.

    Glenn Greenwald: Democratic Party Has Collapsed As A National Political Force.....

    Has anyone noticed the in-fighting to see who's going to be the new leader of the DNC? They are eating their young over there.

    Who cares what Glenn Greenwald SAYS? Has he ever been a democrat?

    So, one has to be a Democrat to know that the Democratic Party is in shambles? Does that same philosophy apply in everything pertaining to party politics?
